What's the coolest place (venue) you ever saw a show and why? I never travelled around much to see the band, didn't really have the resources so I was limited to Central NY area. Did make it to SPAC and Hershey in '85 and a bunch of shows in the Carrier Dome. My favorite was proably SPAC - outdoors, nice night, all in all a lot of fun.

You really know how to get me don't ya. Was living in Alpine valley next door the whole year before and I went to Asia for a while and came back only to find out those shows had occurred right there while I was gone and all my friends had tapes and smiles for me when I got back arrrgh. I had hiked climbed crawled up to that valley so many times before very psychedelically inhanced and to come back and find out that Jerry had played there and played sooooo well while I wasn't there just about killed me.

Red Rocks is one of the few places I'd like to see a show at these days. It is supposed to be beautiful, the sound great, and the bands react to it with superior shows.

Also the Gorge.

3) Frost Ampitheatre
4) Deer Creek

Favorite big venue.

Autzen Stadium. Good shows + onsite camping.

So many others, but those are at the top of my list.

I saw JGB at the 700 seat Flynn Theatre in Burlington VT. Rick Danko opened and said "Wow, this is like being in Jerry's living room". It didn't suck, that's for sure. Patrick Gym was the smallest venue I saw the Dead at but the coolest was Lake Placid because we went out in the woods before the show, climbed a tree and ate our shrooms. And were rewarded with maybe the best Sugaree ever.

ICC in Berlin. Place was fully carpeted (even the aisles), had conference tables with reading lamps & cushy chairs for everyone! Rode in a Mercedes taxi to the show. Rode a jet at the show. You could walk right up to the stage, which was only a couple of feet off the ground during the show. The whole place including the band as I remember it was laughing during Scarlet. It was an absurd location considering the normal venues of that era.

Anyone else there?

Saw/heard a real A/C 427 Cobra outside the hotel parked just off the entrance to the 'Bahn.

Saw a bunch, but that had to be the capper.

Which Fox? Atlanta or St. Louis? My last show was 11-30-1980, Fox Atlanta. While I didn't think that much of the band then (I did like some of the stuff), the Fox really brought a certain level of intimacy and grace to whomever played there. The Rolling Stones did a "surprise" show there on the 1981 tour. The Clash played there in 1982.

I hear the one is St. Louis is just as fine.

Ghost - I caught both the Stones (Stray Cats opener) in 81 and the Clash at the Fox in Atlanta (graduated Roswell High in '82 - about the time you were coming down from your last FE show). Same time period caught a band with Billy Cobham on drums and Alphonso Johnson on bass playing at the now gone Agora right across the street. They had some rock star guy in a lacoste shirt fronting them. Some outfit called Bobby and the Midnites. BUt damn, Alphonso and Cobham were great. Told Jay Lane about seeing Cobham drumming for Bobby and all he could do was shake his head....

I live around 10 minutes from your alma mater--used to live around 2 minutes away off Bowen Road. They sure have torn up the place--new school, country roads turned into highways--the usual shit.

Used to--way back--live in Midtown and dated a lady who waitressed across the street from the Fox. When tickets went on sale, she just walked across Peachtree and snagged a handful of great seats (she had an in and got word before shows were even announced!). That's how I got into the "surprise" Stones concert. The Agora--whew--saw the Clash there in 1979 (or 8? Right when London Calling was coming out). The B-52s, of course (yeah, I confess).

But the Fox--great place just for the ambiance.

Cobham is a monster of a power drummer. He is not listed on the original release of Miles' Jack Johnson with McLaughlin--though it was he and not Jack DeJohnette--right before Mahavishnu. Alphonso--saw him with Weather Report when he replaced Miraslov Vitous (Zawinul wanted da funk).

Ah, good times.

Funniest Atlanta show for me probably was at the Biltmore as my friend, who is on the backcover of London Calling (photo is from the Agora show you saw. Tim Nielsen - bass player in drivin n cryin and also founding member of Kathleen Turner Overdrive with another pal, Ray Dafrico. You may know the names from creative loafing), wanted to see this new young band open for Bow Wow Wow (I Want Candy - I hear the laughter now). That band? REM. Saw them an average of around 10 times a year in the 80s (as the opening act and then headliner around time of Fables) And of course, I must confess to countless nights at the late, great 688.

Well, if you went to the Dark Horse, Highland Tap, Moe's & Joe's (where I pretty much lived for a summer), the Masquerade, Earl, Star Bar, 40 Watt, Fox, Agora, Civic Center, Omni, Harvest Moon Saloon (is that place around?), Alexander Memorial (Ga Tech), from about 79 thru 92 (with periodic visits since), odds are we probably bumped into one another. I was at about every other southeastern drivin n cryin show for the better part of a decade (old, old friends) and many more around the country. Come to think of it, were you the guy always going on about how the show was ok, but dagumit, none of it compared to Pig? (Sadly, you were probably right)

After reading this thread I must say in a most humble (& absolute joking way) that besides GOP you also suck!! I was still in grade school when REM came out but always followed them from the beginning. Living up North I never got to see them in their legendary early years. I have many old tapes of their shows but can't imagine what it was like to actually be there. Ever hear of a band from N.C. called The Connells? Saw them in the early 90's in a room about as big as my living room & they sort of remind you of the early REM. Lots of innovative guitar lines, full of melodies, etc.

Yep, Connells were based out of Raleigh. Same town I saw a lot of shows by a young punk band called The Patty Duke Syndrome. The lead singer got tired of screaming so he formed a great, great band called Whiskeytown. Heard he has a solo career or something now.

BTW, the new REM material in Dublin sounded very, very good. Clips thru their site/youtube. I expect their new album to do well. New Adventures in Hi Fi is one of more the criminally overlooked albums of the past 15 years.

Shoreline MT View was always great. Also, cal expo because it was very intimate. Never got the greek or frost so seeing them in such a small venue was cool, especially since I did many east coast stadiums when I lived there.

As for the oakland Coliseum, it was brutal for acoustics, ect but always loved the laid back vibe. Before the show, the entire floor area was set up as a volleyball court right behind the soundboard. 10 mins before the band hit the stage they took the net down and the floor filled up in seconds. Like a ritual or something

Ok this is a long story but I'll cut it down to travailing to the west coast with this great kind chick Angela from Providence and if your out there I miss you much, but anyway we'd been traveling through the Rockies and the Grand Canyon then up to Tahoe and after a day or 2 camping there we went into a 7-11 or something and a the guy there asked if we were going to the Jerry show. Having been on the road for a month now already we had no idea about any shows but asked this dude where it was and he pointed us Toward the coast of California where it was somewhere over there. Well anyway it looked close by on the map in a birdseye sorta way but after traveling {no joking here} the golden road to Eureka we were hoplessly tired and camped in the car on the side of the road. Waking up a few hours later we made our way down the road toward this French's Camp place we'd been told about. Not long later we pick up a friendly looking hitchhiker who after we pick him up and start conversing claims to be some sort of hog farmer with easy access and knowledge of the whereabouts of the said JGB show if only we give him a ride. Needless to say we were going that way and upon arrival in the pristine redwood forests and riverbends with our new companion we were greeted by his brethren farmers and handed wristbands of gold to get us through the show. This my friend was the best location of any show I ever saw be it Dead or otherwise. Nothing like listening to Dr John and then swimming in the river between acts then Jerry coming on to blow our minds and then being in a beautiful campground that didn't want you to leave full of like minded friends to be total and complete bliss. It never got any better than this.

I'd probably say I liked the intimate parties at Olympeil back in the 60's where along with the band we'd all groove on some of Owlsley's finest and all the chicks ran around naked. Of course when I saw them at those Egypt shows ( as a personal guest of the band of course ) that was pretty cool, with the Pyramid in the back and the lunar eclipse.as pretty damn cool. Can't say that I enjoyed Veneta 72 as much due to the heat.

BTW, before the Jerry comeback shows with the boys in Oakland, he and Uncle Bobo caught Gabriel's tour. I got to say hey (from the aisle about 4 seats away from him and Bill) and tell him welcome back. No wonder he was a Gabriel fan...

And yes, I'm insanely jealous of GOP. But, he'll be dead when I get to set Justin and Britany do their tour together in 2040.
